Nagpur: Denying news reports of a scuffle between police personnel and BJP workers at the entrance to Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis's official residence, Commissioner of Police, Nagpur, Amitesh Kumar on Thursday said no such criminal offence took place.
Speaking to ANI on Thursday, Amitesh Kumar said, "An attempt is being made to exaggerate the incident in Devgiri (the official residence of Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis). I want to make it clear that no such incident, which could be deemed a criminal offence or an NC (non-cognizable crime), took place in Devgiri."
"There was some dispute as BJP workers queued up to enter the deputy CM's residence. However, our senior officers intervened on time and the situation was brought under control. The incident was not as it is being made out to be in some sections of the media," the commissioner of police, Nagpur, added.
A video also went viral on social media purportedly showing BJP members and police personnel in a scuffle at the entrance to Fadnavis's official residence.
According to the police, the deputy chief minister was in Nagpur on Tuesday and several BJP members went to meet him at his official residence.
As per the news reports, there was a scuffle as the BJP members tried to make their way into the bungalow and the police stopped them.
Eventually, the senior officers intervened and asked the BJP members to form a proper queue before entering the bungalow, police said.
However, some news sites claimed that some BJP workers grabbed the collars of some police personnel.
But the police trashed these reports.
The police commissioner met the deputy CM at his residence in the wake of the incident and there was heavy police deployment outside his bungalow.
